Nearby is the home of iron manufacturing pioneer Robert Cravens (1805-1886). During the Civil War siege and battles of Chattanooga, September-November 1863, it was a landmark commonly called the "White House" and was heavily damaged and later destroyed. Cravens rebuilt on the site after the end of the war. In 1956 the Chattanooga Chapter, Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities, restored the rebuilt house.
